New for 2017 - Bell MX-9 Adventures now come with Mips Technology
MIPS, or Multi-Directional Impact Protection System, uses a slip plane designed to manage energy from rotational and angular impacts.
MIPS uses a slip-plane system that moves inside the helmet, mimicking the brain's own protection system. This layer is designed to rotate inside the helmet with the intent to potentially slow or reduce the amount of energy transferred to or from the head. Science tells us that if we can reduce the strains associated with rotational acceleration, we might reduce the risk and severity of brain injury.
